When opening a business or a VAT number, the first thing you need to choose very carefully is the accountant.

How and when was the idea of Fido accountant born?
The idea of FidoCommercialista was born in 2018 from many speeches in the family between me, my brother and my father that we reasoned about how to change and innovate the Primieri Studio that deals with tax, accounting and business consulting for more than 30 years in Italy. I studied marketing and management and am a practicing accountant, my brother is a computer programmer, and my father has been an accountant for more than 30 years. We have put together our knowledge and created FidoCommercialista! Over time, many other professionals have joined the project who have become partners and have shared the ideals and mission of FidoCommercialista, starting to offer their services through our platform.
How long did it take to shape the project?
We went live on the first of January 2020 after a year and a half since we started thinking about the project. We have taken this time to analyze the market, the product features and above all to develop our web-app. The launch of this start-up was a long process full of uncertainty, when we started thinking about this idea similar services didn’t exist, and we had serious doubts about the feasibility of the project and the reactions of the market: after almost 2 years since the launch of FidoCommercialista I can say that the idea was a winner, and the market has reacted very well, now counting thousands of customers all over Italy, of any industry and size, starting from the professionals up to companies with more than 50 employees!

How did you launch your brand?
We launched our brand through our website and social channels. We immediately aroused a lot of interest in the market being a new service and the only one in Italy to assist any tax regime.
